The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foun­da­tion held its 14th Annual Gala on Thurs­day, November 10th at Cipriani, 25 Broadway, with almost 500 guests. Hosted by Ali and Joe Torre, and emceed by MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds, the evening offered engagement and insight into the work of the Safe At Home Foundation and provided the opportunity for the Foundation to honor Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred Jr., for the Domestic Violence Policy instituted in baseball in 2015.

Raising over $1.5 million for Safe At Home’s thirteen Margaret’s Place programs in New York, New Jersey and California, the event also celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 1996 World Champion Yankees. A panel discussion led by Joe Torre and Harold Reynolds showcased memories and highlights of that championship season with the players and coaches onstage, Jose Cardenal, David Cone, Mariano Duncan, Cecil Fielder, Andy Fox, Derek Jeter, Jim Leyritz, Tino Martinez, Jeff Nelson, Paul O’Neill, Willie Randolph, John Wetteland, and Bernie Williams. Joe called Don Mattingly onstage, who shared his thoughts about the players and team that he left one year prior, while the 1996 players spoke of his leadership and his impact on their careers. The evening culminated with an After-Party and Saturday Night Live comedienne Melissa Villaseñor entertaining the crowd of almost 200 professionals.

Our Gala Com­mit­tee mem­bers, Co-Chairs, Gerry Polizzi & Matt Cushman, Jim Gallagher, Tom Kushner, James O’Connor, Steve Petersen, Franco Salhi, John Skipper, and Adam Wolfberg, helped to lead the way in the success of the evening, while our After-Party Committee members, Charles Cho, Brian DePaulo, Liz Dowan, Naveen Gidwani, Nathalie Hedman, Julie Mauser, Seth Ruthen, Yvonne Ruthen, Jeffrey Trongone, Timothy Weber, and Jennifer Zagoren provided the perfect finish to this fantastic experience.
